Astronauts on a manned mission to the International Space Station (ISS) will wait for their flight. The launch of the Falcon 9 rocket, scheduled for Monday, failed due to a malfunction.

On Monday morning, Polish time, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket was to take off from the John F. Kennedy Space Center NASA at Cape Canaveral, Florida, the sixth manned mission to the International Space Station (ISS).

Launch canceled due to failure

The countdown went smoothly, but only up to a point. With just over two minutes to go, the start was stopped. As explained, the cause was a perceived problem with chemical ignition.
